I've always kind of taken offense (on behalf of the band of course) to the nostalgia act label. I agree that it's hard to ignore that many people at the shows were there for some type of '60s throwback thing. But I think that most people who were and are really into the music were there just for that and for the friends who were there for the same reasons. a lot of the music sounded pretty modern and some of the jams were downright avant garde right up to the end.

what, people in their sixties going to see the rolling stones aren't there for nostalgia as well? who really cares why they bought a ticket. if they got it, great. if not, no big deal. i stopped trying to turn people on to the dead because most people just cant appreciate that kind of music. they lose interest if the song exceeds three minutes.

If RS had a sense of accuracy/humor, they would have named the Top 100/Immortals, left a blank page, followed by:

"And then there was The Grateful Dead"
